Chero Chero!


Heroes

Heroes Seaon 3 has been out for quite a while and I can find no other phrase than ‘it sucks’ to aptly and succintly describe it. Period.

Season 1 was piloted with a bang and it took the whole world by storm, at the risk of sounding very cliched. I loved it. Loved every twist in the story; loved the character development; loved the surprises and loved Hiro Nakamura most of all.

Season 2 was quite cool, albeit a little too short and abrupt (remember the writers’ strike, people?). Sam burned the whole season into a DVD for me and I devoured it…watching episodes back-to-back. That could have been attributed to how good the show was…or the fact that honestly, INTEC people don’t have a lot of options when it comes to entertainment. At that point, Tom & Jerry could be considered as entertaining I suppose.

And then..*jeng jeng jeng* Season 3. Blah. So Nathan is revived. Again. And his dead father suddenly appears. Also, he can see another -surprise!- dead person, Linderman. What else..Oh Niki died in Season 2 but then *wow* someone who looks exactly like her but is -here it goes- not her appears and a little somethingsomething goes on between her and Nathan. Wasn’t Nathan also sorta attracted to Niki? Anyway…is it only me? As in..am I the only one confused by the weird timeline? Back-and-forth, back-and-forth through the present and the future. Sheesh. I watched 1 episode and I just completely gave up.

So if you’re like me (ie have lotsa free time but no mood to go clubbing, hang out etcetc), I suggest these series to keep you entertained

Gossip Girl

Forget 90210. If you like a show with hot people, scandal, sex amd designer clothes, look no further than Gossip Girl. I have been oh-so-hooked onto Gossip Girl from the moment Judy let me watch Season 1 on her laptop. I mean…seriously, Manhattan’s elite never looked so good. Also, does any hot-blooded straight girl not have a crush on Chace Crawford? And the way Kirsten Bell narrates is tres scandalous =P

I also love the quotes by Blair Waldorf. LMAO-worthy, really =D

Blair: Okay, I have a problem. I have a big problem! It starts with a capital RX.
Nurse: What drugs have you been taking?
Blair: Caffiene, Nicotine, Cadimine, Disprine, LSD, Driazapam, Flurazepam. All the pams really, I don’t discriminate.
Nurse: Apparently not
(picks up phone)
Nurse: Code yellow, floor six. Why don’t you wait right here? I’ll get a doctor.
(Begining to leave)
Blair: And I’d love a cappuccino!

in Dare Devil (Season 1)

Blair: Thank you, Father. That was very good advice…. You don’t grant birthday wishes, do you?
Priest: I’m a priest, not a genie.
Blair: Well, the next time you talk to Him, could you ask Him to send my boyfriend back to me?

in Seventeen Candles (Season 1)

Chuck: Please don’t leave with him.
Blair: Why? Give me a reason… and “I’m Chuck Bass” doesn’t count.
Chuck: ‘Cause you don’t want to.
Blair: That’s not enough.
Chuck: ‘Cause I don’t want you to.
Blair: That’s not enough.
Chuck: What else is there?
Blair: The true reason I should stay right where I am and not get in the car. Three words. Eight letters. Say it… that I’m yours.
Chuck: I… I … [pause]
Blair: Thank you. That’s all I needed here.

in Summer, Kind of Wonderful (Season 2)

Reaper

Sam’s a reaper who’s in charged of sending escaped souls back to hell cos his parents sold his soul to the Devil. Sounds darkly morbid, but it isn’t. What it is is a hilarious laugh riot, especially due to one of Sam’s sidekicks, Sock’s antics. Also, the Devil is strangely smooth and debonair (no horns and tail!) and loves ice-cream lol

Grey’s Anatomy

Sure, Meredith’s on-off-on again-off again relationship with Derek gets a bit annoying but the whole concept of the show is still refreshing (ok not refreshing as in well…medical dramas are nothing new..but Grey’s Anatomy is so much cooler than say, ER?). And it’s also interesting how cold and mean Christina is haha…I love watching her be a bitch.

I do watch loads of shows haha…but I’m just gonna include these three here cos honestly, I’m getting kinda lazy..lost steam lol. Point is…Heroes Season 3 is atrociously bad. Hopefully it will improve once Bryan Fuller is back from his now-cancelled show Pushing Daisies (another awesome show! Strangely brightly and morbidly fascinating)

Okayy..I’m going to watch paint dry now lmao
